Least you had a response. which is always a plus. Hopefully in future they'll do something with it.

That's annoying about part 1 of Countdown mind. why do it one way for part 1 and then another way for part 2?

Yeah i was glad for a response, its never happened before or since.

My email was really more praise and positive than negative. I did say i was disappointed that it wasnt in the hardcover and that I would love to see it restored and released officially.

Also i should say that i got response on march 27, i sent the email in jan or February  i think.

Similar. I own the original Trades, Omnibus Volume 1 + the new fancy pants Hardcover versions so not sure if this is worth it unless it brings something else to the playground.

I had a flick through this in the comic store. Looks like a coloured version of the Hicks & Newt version of Book One. Couldn't tell if it was a new colouring or not, though.

Did you notice if it included the page from book 2 that was not in the fancy pants release?  The one of Spears looking at the Xeno in the cylinder.

The `Perfection' panel which DB actually did in 96' ... I hope it does.

Wasn't there some issue with the quality of the original artwork or something like that? By that I mean the actual physical quality of DB's artwork not the artistic merit (which is undoubted).

Wouldn't have thought so - they managed to blow it up to magazine size for the Aliens magazine reprint and it looked fine.

I did hear they lost the original masters somewhere along the line, which is why it hasn't been collected since. How true that is...

However i learned the hard way that the first part was actually a seperate mini issue originally sold with issue vol.2#9. I have yet to find a copy of the part one mini comic  :'(

Same thing happened to me. I ended up buying another copy of #9 that came with the mini-comic included.
